Successful competition highlights importance of investing in next generation of leaders in science.
For the run up to the 2015 National Science Bowl, this story is the last profile of a series on previous National Science Bowl competitors and champions.
New approach to designing ordered composite materials for possible energy applications.
05.01.15 A 20-ton superconducting magnet traveled from California's SLAC Lab to New York's Brookhaven Lab as part of a proposed upgrade to the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider's PHENIX detector.
05.01.15 Computational physicists from the University of Southern California use large-scale computations to design advanced materials that can heal themselves. Such materials would last longer and could reduce power plant shutdowns and repair downtime.
04.30.15 The Dark Energy Survey, which studies the accelerating expansion of our universe, uses one of the most sensitive observing tools that astronomers have: the Dark Energy Camera. Built at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory and situated on the Victor Blanco 4-meter telescope in Chile, the camera spends 30 percent of each year collecting light from clusters of galaxies for DES.

A research team led by geoscientists from Brown University and the Marine Biological Laboratory has provided some crucial ground-truth for a method of measuring plant photosynthesis on a global scale from low-Earth orbit.
Thanks to research by a team at MIT, the University of Arizona, and Brookhaven National Laboratory, new analysis shows how bombardier beetles produce an explosive defensive chemical jet.
Zane Crawford, an Honors College senior majoring in electrical engineering, has earned a Computational Science Graduate Fellowship from the U.S. Department of Energy.
